Policy: Export Control

Berkeley Lab policy is to comply with all applicable state and federal laws, including those relating to Export Control.  Berkeley Lab's Export Control Program is designed to support Berkeley Lab's and the University of California‚Äôs international activities by ensuring compliance with U.S. export laws and regulations in the context of our fundamental research mission.

Much of the Lab's compliance with U.S. export laws and regulations is based on our remaining within the "fundamental research" exception, i.e. performing basic or applied research for which the resulting information is ordinarily published and shared broadly within the scientific community.

Also, make sure all your shipments of tangible research products (i.e. not commercially available) outside the U.S. are properly labeled and go through the Lab's shipping department (not for example dropped off personally at FedEx). If you have a question or concern about an export control matter, please contact the Lab's Export Control Officer at x7096 or see the Berkeley Lab Export Control Manual.
